Roma captain hits back at Ronaldo's 'you're too small' jibe

Empoli won 2-1 at Sampdoria for its first away victory of the season, while Udinese beat already relegated Frosinone 3-1.

The defeat for Juventus was also marked by the unveiling of their controversial new home strip, which sees the club abandon the traditional black and white strikes in favor of a half white, half black two-tone approach.

Juventus, the 35-time Italian top flight title winners, will make its debut with new shirt in the game against Roma in Serie A on Sunday.

They occupy sixth place with 62 points on the board, level with AC Milan and just one point off fourth place Inter Milan. "Even if not everything depends on us, we have to get to the end with a clear conscience".

Juventus had started the game brightly as Ronaldo fired wide, Juan Cuadrado had a shot saved by Antonio Mirante and Leonardo Spinazzola saw a shot blocked, all inside the first seven minutes of the match.

Cristiano Ronaldo thought he had put Juventus ahead when he collected Dybala's pass before running on to slot the ball past Mirante but he was fractionally offside.

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are yet again front runners to win the coveted honour, with both players winning their respective domestic crowns.

Torino captain Andrea Belotti scored a brace, including the victor with a spectacular overhead kick in a come-from-behind 3-2 win over 10-man Sassuolo.

"We knew very well how important it was to win today", said Belotti.

The three points could also be vital for Torino's Europa League hopes, with their final two games against struggling Empoli and Lazio.

Diego Farias and Giovanni Di Lorenzo scored for Empoli before Fabio Quagliarella converted a stoppage-time penalty for his 26th league goal of the season.
